FILE - This April 27, 2009 file photo shows Cameron, son of actor Michael Douglas, at the premiere of the film "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" in Los Angeles. Douglas is calling for treatment rather than jail time for non-violent drug offenders. He wrote an essay published Tuesday, June 11, 2013, by the Huffington Post that says United States laws impose tougher penalties on addicts than violent criminals. The 34-year-old is serving a 9 ½-year prison sentence after various drug violations. Douglas was first convicted in 2010 of selling methamphetamine, and a judge nearly doubled that sentence after he was found guilty of repeatedly breaking prison rules by arranging to get drugs.
